Surface, Emitter and Bulk Recombination in Silicon and Development of Silicon Nitride Passivated Solar Cells

Kerr, Mark John


¶ Recombination within the bulk and at the surfaces of crystalline silicon has been investigated in this thesis. Special attention has been paid to the surface passivation achievable with plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposited (PECVD) silicon nitride (SiN) films due to their potential for widespread use in silicon solar cells. The passivation obtained with thermally grown silicon oxide (SiO2) layers has also been extensively investigated for comparison. ¶ Injection-level dependent lifetime...[Show more]
